Sharad Pawar: Modi as PM emboldened communal forces – Financial Express

NCP president Sharad Pawar on Sunday expressed alarm over the rising communal incidents after Narendra Modi became the prime minister. At the NCP’s 15th Foundation Day function here, Pawar said, “The change of government in Delhi appears to have emboldened the communal forces who have started asserting themselves leading to growing incidents of communal conflict against minorities and dalits across Maharashtra.”

Citing an example of the killing of 28-year-old Mohsin Sadiq Shaikh in Pune, Pawar said, “It is evident that communal forces who were suppressed are now emerging out and willing to strike against those who do not subscribe to their ideology.”
